Ohio Supreme Court hears misconduct case against Cleveland judge
(WEWS-TV) – Ohio’s highest court is determining whether to discipline Cleveland Municipal Court Judge Pinkey Carr for alleged misconduct. Carr is accused of more than one hundred serious incidents of misconduct over a two-year period that includes the first year of the pandemic, when Carr allegedly continued to hold in-person hearings. She's also accused of issuing arrest warrants for defendants who did not appear in court during Ohio's stay-at-home order at the start of the pandemic. Carr's attorney told justices of the Ohio Supreme Court at a hearing yesterday that her judgment was impaired due to menopause, sleep apnea and anxiety.
